During his magic training which he excels, he befriends the twins, Adeltrud "Addy" and Archid "Kid" Olter and also teaches them his magic skills. When the trio finally enrolled at Laihiala Academy, directed by Eru's grandfather, Eru learns he cannot pilot a Silhouette Knight as he is too young and short but is allowed to skipped to middle school classes after impressing his teachers with his power thanks to his Gunblade magic rod to compensate a magic rod's short range abilities. As Eru becomes 12 years old, he joins a class training trip between the middle and high school students at Cloquet Forest and meets Stefania Serrati, the Olters' older half-sister who the siblings share a complicated relationship since Addy and Kid are illegitimate children. Later that night, the class camp is attacked by a swarm of demon beasts which Eru, Addy, and Kid rescue Stefania and the rest of the students with help of their high school seniors riding Silhouette Knights.

As the student's evacuate, the senior students Silhouette Knights lead by Edgar C. Blanche, Helvi Oberi and Dietrich Knitz fight and distract the Behemoth. After seeing one of his comrades killed by the Behemoth's fire breath, Dietrich runs away in fear, which Eru follows him, knocks him out and steal his Guair Silhouette Knight. After improvising the Guair's controls and improving its movements using his magic and programming, Eru rides the Guair into battle and rescuing his seniors by stabbing the Behemoth's left eye with a sword. Despite help from the kingdom's Silhouette Knights, the Behemoth is too strong due to its thick armor and fire breath. In order to defeat it, Eru jumps onto the Behemoth's head and casts lighting into its wounded eye, which transmit to its brain, killing it. At sunrise, the surviving Knight Runners are shocked to discovered Guair's pilot was not Dietrich but Eru.

Eru is summoned by the King who wants to reward him any prize for defeating the Behemoth. Much to the court and his grandfather's shock, Eru asks for the classified schematics of an Ether Reactor, the heart of a Silhouette Knight. When Eru explains he wants to make his dream Silhouette Knight and ride it as his hobby, the King is amused with his answer and agrees to Eru's request if he can built an improved Silhouette Knight first. One of the King's advisors, Marquis Selati, Stefania, Addy and Kid's father, tells his children to report to him if Eru is successful so he may inform the King. Meanwhile, Eru explains his plan to improve a Silhouette Knight's performance to his dwarf friend, Batson, and his senior and Silhouette Knight engineer, David, who is impressed with Eru's idea. Using Helvi's Trandorkis as a testbed, Eru and the Dwarven engineers improves the Trandorkis strength by 30% using stranded crystal tissues and adds two sidearms armed with magic rods behind its back so the Silhouette Knight can fight close range and cast spells at the same time. In the meantime, Eru and Batson also built Silhouette Gears, human size mech suits so that Addy and Kid can learn how to operate Silhouette Knights. With the improvements done, the Trandorkis, now renamed Telestale, performs well in its first test run. Later, Helvi's Telestale battles Edgar's Earlcumber in a mock match and almost win before the Telestale mana runs out.

Under Marquis Dixgard orders, the Order of the Scarlet Rabbit has three Telestale Silhouette Knight brought to Fort Casadesus where the Marquis will inspect and test the Knights personally. During the journey, the Scarlet Rabbit convoy is ambushed by a Shaker Worm demon beast which Edgar, Helvi and Dietrich in their Telestales are able to defeat it which impresses Knight Commander Fredholm of the Scarlet Rabbits. Unaware by everyone, the ambush was set up by Order of the Bronze Fang, the spies who have been observing Eru's work. At Fort Casadesus, Marquis Dixgard, who dislikes Eru for breaking the status Quo on Knight design, meets Eru personally. After telling Eru that he will be reporting all new Silhouette Knight design to the King, the Marquis is flabbergasted that Eru doesn't mind nor is he interested with fame or riches since he wants to make newer and better Silhouette Knight and eventually relents.

However, the Bronze Fang Knights encounter Edgar and Dietrich on the way which the latter two tries to stop them with Kid and Addy helping in their Silhouette Gears.

Dietrich tries to follow her but he and the others are surrounded by demon beasts until Eru and Commander Fredholm arrives to help them. The next morning, Marquis Dixgard is shocked to discover the intruders that attacked the Fort and stole the Telestale were using cursed bait, a forbidden concoction that attracts demon beasts and turns them crazy and concludes this was the work of another nation. Days later, Eru and his friends are thanked by King Ambrosius for their work who also creates a new Order of Knights called the Order of the Silver Phoenix lead by Eru to research and create better Silhouette Knights.

Meanwhile, after discussing their battle plans, the Silver Phoenix and Kuschperchans agree to Eleonora's strategy where she will lead the entire Kuschperchan army to recapture their capital Delvancul while Eru and the Silver Phoenix Knights battle the Vyver.
